Can Defibrillators benefit HealthCare?

Defibrillators are devices that restore normal heartbeat by sending an electrical pulse or shock to the heart. They are used to prevent or correct arrhythmia, a heartbeat that is uneven or too slow or too fast. Defibrillators will also recover the rhythm of the heart if the heart stops suddenly.

Different types of defibrillators

Automated external defibrillators (AEDs)

implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs)

cardioverter defibrillators (WCDs)

Benefits Of Defibrillators:

Defibrillators can prevent sudden death among people at high risk of life-threatening arrhythmias.

The Advanced Life Support Unit (ALS) is a device used by healthcare providers in hospitals and ambulances. ALS units also provide important information to help health care providers make decisions and provide treatment.

AEDs are available in public places, such as schools, shopping centers and airports. The AED guides users to use electrodes. It then automatically analyzes the heart rhythm of the patient. 

ICD is implanted in the chest or abdomen. It is attached to the heart by wires and electrodes and will automatically cause shock when needed. Your doctor may prescribe an ICD if you are at risk of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmia.

The wearable defibrillator is worn out of the body. This device is used if  there is a short-term risk of life-threatening arrhythmias or if you are not a candidate for an implantable device.

Full Report:


Defibrillation is an emergency treatment for ventricular fibrillation and other life threatening arrhythmias. A heart that stops pumping blood to the brain and body during ventricular fibrillation. If not treated instantly, it can cause cardiac arrest and death within a few minutes. Defibrillation restores normal heartbeat by choking the heart with electricity.
